John Black p 132 202 e classifieds@thecouriermail.com.au TRAINING & COURSES BIG-name, national or multinational companies often are the first choice of many apprentices but signing up with a small to medium-size enterprise (SMEs) can have significant benefits. Apprentices who work for small businesses often are exposed to a wider variety of jobs than those working at larger companies, says Glenn Miller, industry consultant at Marcellin Technical College. You will definitely get more experience going to a small business, Miller says. I get a lot of students come to me and say they would like to work in a big company so that they get lots of different things to do but thats not always the case you might be streamlined to just one duty. If you take an electrical apprentice, for example, they could be wiring up new houses but then they will go and do a renovation on an older home that will give them a different set of skills because they will be working in more enclosed spaces and dirtier spaces. Miller says by working alongside the boss, apprentices at SMEs can have more opportunities to be mentored than those working for larger companies where supervisors may not always be on site. Despite fears a small business may be more likely to let apprentices go during a downturn, Miller says the reverse is true. He says apprentices at SMEs tend to display a really grownup attitude, even at a young age. They take on the responsibility for getting the job done , he says. GOOD SIZE: Apprentice Reece Jongenelis says small outfits offer lots of experience. Picture: EMMA BRASIER COURSE YOU CAN ELECTRICIAN KEY ROLES Electricians design, assemble, install, test, commission, diagnose, maintain and repair electrical networks, systems, circuits, equipment, components, appliances and facilities. They may undertake residential, commercial or industrial work. They need to be able to read blueprints, wiring diagrams and specifications; measure and lay out installation reference points; use electrical and electronic test instruments to trace and diagnose faults; repair and replace faulty wiring and defective parts; position and install electrical switchboards; and connect electrical systems to power supplies. QUALIFICATIONS Year 11 and 12 students can pursue an electrical career through Australian Trade College North Brisbane SALARY $41,199 to $94,699 MRAEL Group executive support manager Caryn Bayliss says all apprentices are assessed under the same national training packages, regardless of the size of the company. She says SMEs may particularly suit apprentices from regional areas who want to stay in their local community, where access to national companies may be nonexistent. Many SMEs also win contracts to work on major projects. First-year electrical apprentice Reece Jongenelis, 17, already has experienced a wide range of work environments. Its only me and my boss here so we do absolutely everything solar, airconditioning, data electrical, security, general electrical work and some commercial work as well, he says.
